The model number doesn't seem to be quite right. Sears model numbers usually have a xxx.xxxxxxx pattern. The first 3 digits are often in bold print and somewhat separated from the rest of the number. If you can, take another look at it... We probably won't be able to give you tractor models that it fits exactly, more of a general "Type" of tractor it'll go on. Also, Pictures would be a help.

I agree the model number isn't right. Also a lot of the tillers for Sears tractors were self powered with their own engine and mounted with either their own size 3 point hitch or a sleeve hitch. If the tractor had the 3 speed forward and high and low range tranny in it I think they had the self powered tiller. I don't remember them having a mule drive set up to run a tiller off of the tractors engine.
Also welcome to the group Junkman! you will find this a friendly place to hang out. Look around the site and if you have any questions just ask. Glad to have you here. Mike

Welcome to GTTalk.I would say they fit some wear around to late 80's early 90's tractors.Tried the model and had no luck with it so far.

Same here, spent an irritating 20 minutes on SearsChat with "Tarina B" & "Robert W." Eventually they both got around to not being able to help me at all & suggested I call Canadian Customer Assistance to see what they could do. LOL, I guess the balls back in your court.

As for the type of tractor. Garden tractor (obviously), horizontal shaft probably, larger engine unit either with H/L range or Hydrostatic. I'd agree with the mid 80's to mid-90's verdict. If you do get more info from Sears Canada, please let us know.

EDIT: Are the deck & tiller from the same unit or for the same unit... if so, that's the same deck as my GT6000 from '95, but it's a verticle engine... there must be a 90 degree drive adapter or that pulley assembly is to turn the belt 90 degrees and the belt is a LONG one. The more I look at it, that's what I'm seeing.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think that tiller goes on the FFxx model tractors. Mower deck might be for same. (???)

Found one reference that says the 944 prefix is for items manufactured by Husqvarna.

Per my previous post, it's NOT for the FFxx tractors, but for sale by Sears/Canada. Still looking....

Allan,I will let you do the sears chat have hard enough time keeping up with you guys on here LOL.

I did look at the deck some more and i belive you are on the right track.It is for a vertical shaft motor and may be for LT series tractors made in the 2000's
Loooks real close to the 2004 LT1000 i had years ago.Still nothing on the tiller.

both tiller and deck are for the LT tractors. They made them but I have only seen 2 of these and none in person. So I think they were something sears tried but never got to work. The FF series had PTOs on the rear so they had the regular Cat:1 tiller.

The tiller & deck may be for an LT, but for all the world it looks like the 44" deck on my GT6000. Those right angle pulleys would make it work from the engine.
